DJ Central

Team DJ Central is proud to bring you the best in music! Meet the team!

Season 6 of DJ Central is on the way! We’ve discussed this at length before, and we’ve also discussed DJ Central seasons 1 and 2 being LIVE on Amazon Prime, and also DJ Central seasons 1-5 being LIVE on Vimeo On-Demand… but our partnership with Amazon Prime and VOD didn’t spring up randomly. We’re very grateful to the Amazon team for their efforts in helping us reach this global point! And of course, DJ Central and Blue Pie had a team of their own pooling their efforts too- a team that loves to create music TV!

SEASONS 1-5 ON VIMEO ON DEMAND: www.vimeo.com/ondemand/djcentraltv
We’re a group of music lovers and we like to think it shows! We are shooting season 6 and we’re all excited about the new global partnership with Vimeo On-Demand and Amazon Prime, and all our other networks! And of course, we’re honoured to be working with the artists that we are.

Who could forget DL Down3r and the hashtag competitions created due to the overwhelming popularity of his music, for instance?! You might even get a chance to get into Season 6 through his work…

Or maybe you’re more interested in the funky fresh beats of J Young? The mastermind behind the amazing “Oxygen”!

But there’s no doubt you’ll be a fan of the sweet summery bangers from STANDAARD! Perfect to listen to, but terribly distracting- it’s always hard to write about them for want of dancing your heart out!

Our pride in our artists is well-founded, as you can see. Perhaps we’ll take pride in your music some day?

Click here, we want YOUR music to be submitted for season six! Get noticed and let’s both make our dreams come true through each other’s efforts!

We’re waiting for you! Send us everything through our social medias or to content@bluepie.com.au! We’re keeping an eager eye out for the future of music, so give it your best shot and don’t be shy! You’ve met the team… now why not try and join us?!

and the winner of eurovision 2014 is …..

Austrian performer Conchita Wurst, who has come to be known as the ‘bearded lady’, declared the winner. She has attracted widespread praise and predictably homophobic criticism following her win. Wurst’s message at the press conference following her win: “This project is based on tolerance, acceptance and love.” She dedicated the award to “everyone who believes in a future of peace and freedom.

Australia’s Jessica Mauboy performed during a break in the competition in front of an estimated audience of over 20 million fans. Mauboy took to the stage to perform her new song ‘Sea of Flags’ which was co-written by Ilan Kidron (of The Potbelleez) and expat Stuart Crichton (who has written songs for Kylie, Delta, and Sugababes).

Galantis YOU Remix!

Galantis’ massive second single You was destined for a remix package. The duo has already treated us to the Brillz, Still Young, and Tiesto vs.Twoloud remixes.

Christian Karlsson and producer Linus “Style of Eye” Eklöw of Galantis has cohesively produced an EP that captures the coexistence of human emotion with electronic dance music. The duo’s first self-titled Galantis EP focuses on the art of songwriting from each heart-capturing lyric to the playful melodies or as Linus says, “Music, not genres” – serves as the adhesive to the group’s creative vision. Their eclectic background extends outside of their own separate projects and into the pop world – Karlsson co-wrote and produced the GRAMMY Award winning track, “Toxic,” by Britney Spears. Eklow co-wrote and produced Icona Pop’s international #1 hit, “I Love It.”

“You,” from Galantis’ self-titled EP, made its way into Kaskade and Steve Angello’s sets at last month’s Ultra Music Festival in Miami.

The remix EP comes out May 26 on Big Beat Records.

Michael Jackson is back to life for the time of an album!

After releasing the first posthumous album “Michael” in 2010, Epic Records and Sony have realised that it is a good money.. euh good tribute for the pop star Michael Jackson. Indeed they have paid a quarter of a billion dollars for the unreleased music rights, and now it’s our turn to pay for the second posthumous album “Xscape”

They have joined producers as Timbaland and Stargate to remix them, and the first song “Love never felt so good” sounds actually pretty good, with a disco groove that recalls the best of Michael Jackson and a dash of Justin Timberlake. The song was originally written by Michael Jackson and Paul Anka back in 1983.
